From the wisdom behind fasting

Since 2012-12-23


From the wisdom behind fasting is that:

It is an act of worship done for Allah, in which the 'adb (servant) draws closer to His lord by abandoning the things that he loves and desires, such as food, drink and sexual intercourse. This is done in order to achieve His Lord's Pleasure and success in the next life. By doing this, he show outwardly achieve these thing. And this will cause him to be generous with him, by giving him charity and showing kindness to him.

And from the wisdom behind fasting is that it trains one to curb and subject his soul, such that he is able to lead it towards that which is good for it and what will make it prosper in this world and the next. And he distances himself from becoming an animal-like person who cannot control and restrain himself from fulfilling his yearns and desires.
